7:10 am
hauled away boxes of documents from the office of a south florida eye doctor a prominent democratic donor with ties to new jersey senator bob menendez. the fbi is refusing to say publicly why it's investigating dr. salomon melgen. melgen currentcally has an outstanding irs lien of $11.1 million for back taxes but it's his relationship with menendez that has become a focus. last month "the daily caller" accused menendez of accepting prostitutes at melgen's mansion in the dominican republic and using his private jet for transportation. at the time a spokesman for menendez said "he was not going to respond to a completely false acquisition" and he easily won a second term. this week assuming a more
7:11 am
prominent role in the senate foreign relations committee he was more forceful. in a statement the new jersey democrat called melgen "a friend and political support for many years and acknowledged he traveled on melgen's plane three occasions, all of which have been paid for and reported appropriately" but his denial of wrongdoing was cat garr kohl "any allegations of engaging with prostitutes are manufactured by a politically motivated right wing blog and are false." harry reid echoed the sentiment. >> anyone has to look at the source where this comes from. >> while menendez says he paid for the flights on the private jet he did so only recently, his office confirmed he reimbursed melgen more than $58,000 for two flights after complaints were made to the ethics committee. norah and charlie? >> january crawford thanks. president obama's nominee for defense secretary is on capitol hill right now facing his critics on the senate armed
7:12 am
services committee. former republican senator chuck hagel is the only witness at this morning's confirmation hearing. earlier we spoke to bob woodward associate editor of "the washington post" asking him if the hagel nomination is in good shape at this time. >> it looks like it is and you know we've got some questions to answer but what's interesting in the reports we've done on it is that there is a like-mindedness between obama and hagel about where the military should go when it should be used a sense of scaling back at the same time there's a hawkish side to it that you have to be ready to use the military but i think the mind meld between the president and hagel is the key factor here, and as you know the defense secretary is in effect the deputy commander in chief.
7:13 am
you look back we would not have had vietnam without secretary of defense mcnamara almost certainly we would not have had or in the way we had the iraq war without defense secretary rumsfeld, so this is a big deal. >> and bob, you write about that, that obama has found a soul mate on the issue of war. so with hagel as defense secretary, even though he served certainly during vietnam, a republican, what does it mean for american engagement in the world in the next four years? >> that it's going to be done in a much more careful way. clearly in my research on the first book i did on obama and talking with the president about the war in afghanistan he like hagel has an aversion to war. he'll go to war but in obama's famous nobel prize acceptance speech he made it very clear that war may be necessary but
7:14 am
it's always a manifestation of human folly. >> and the secretary of state, john kerry, has said they need to get their economic house in order as a first priority for national security. look at syria and look at iran. where does the secretary of defense nominee and the president stand on iran? >> well the policy is to prevent iran from getting the bomb that is the most difficult policy to execute. it's not a matter of containment. it's a matter of stopping it whether that's going to be effective, we're going to see, but as you both know the world is really dangerous now. there are a lot of powder kegs and hot spots and whether they can calibrate a policy that will send the message to potential enemies or adversaries that will use the military if necessary,
7:15 am
but at the same time not be in the hair trigger mode which some other presidents and secretaries of defense have been. >> thank you, bob. >> thank you bob. syria's ambassador to lebanon says syria has an option to retaliate after an attack deep inside the country. clarissa, good morning to you. >> good morning norah and charlie. there are few details as to exactly what happened yesterday. the syrian government has said that that israeli air strike hit a military research base about seven miles northwest of damascus. israeli officials are not saying anything, but a pentagon official tells cbs news the intended target or the target was believed to be a convoy that was carrying heavy weapons out of syria into lebanon to go to hezbollah, the shiite militant
7:16 am
group. now, obviously syria shares a border with israel. it has very serious concerns about the security situation inside syria, particularly because syria has a significant stock of chemical weapons. at this stage no one is expecting the syrians to launch a retaliatory attack but certainly this raises very real concerns about the possibility that syria's civil war is spilling across its borders. >> thank you clarissa ward. time to show you morning's headlines from around the globe.

7:41 am
>> if there's a smoking gun and the players know it's a banned substance, yes. but short of that media day will magnify any and everything right now. i don't know how big a deal and ray certainly understands what this could do to his legacy if true. >> also, he's also aware of what it could do if it distracts him from the game. so let me go to the game itself. what is happening in the news about the two teams and leading up to the big game on sunday? >> you know, typically, at super bowls when you find the media trying to parse every word something to knock the teams off stride, that's what will happen. i don't think that's any chance that will happen with either of these teams. they are truly reflections of their coaches. they're laser focused on this. believe me anything and everything you have heard won't affect the play on the field at all. >> there's controversy about chris culver, the 49ers making some comments that some viewed as anti-gay.
7:42 am
he has apologized for that. what do you make of that? >> in the context of the media looking for things. insensitive, for sure. you don't tolerate and nor should you, but it won't have any adverse impact on the team at all. and he's apologized. >> and dan marino is in the news today. >> a very close friend. it's a family matter. he and his wife, it's between he and them. i pray not only for the family but all involved. >> so jb, excited about the game sunday? >> i am. and the game is a thing. great story lines going into it it ought to be a good game. >> let me tell you quickly, we met the harbaughs last night, the mother and father and john was there too. >> and jim may be more

>> you of course are the associate dean of science at the university of alabama at birmingham. let's talk about the myths. the first one that may surprise a lot of people sex doesn't really burn calories. really? >> well, it does burn some calories but not as many as people might like to believe it does. if you look at popular diet and nutrition websites they say a bout of sex burns roughly 150 to 300 calories per 30 to 60 minutes. the reality is that the average bout of sex lasts six minutes and bernurns about 21 calories. >> if you mention burning calories and exercise, it seems it always comes down to eat less, exercise more. >> that's absolutely right. what it comes down to is energy which is coming from eating or
7:49 am
things but -- but how can we reverse that. it's partly behavioral. and partly physiological. biochemical. but how we get people to expend more energy. >> small sustained changes in how many calories we take in are going to accumulate to produce large weight gain. why is that a myth? >> what turns out is that people have been previously projected that the things would accumulate indefinitely. for example, one of us started walking 30 minutes a day after dinner perhaps. that would expend 100 calories a day. over 35 days 3,500 calories. one might think that would burn a pound of fat. well, long enough you realize in 20 years we'll have each lost 100 pounds which is unrealistic. because as you get smaller, your body takes less energy to move you through space and to pump blood through the body and so
7:50 am
you reach a stable point. >> and losing weight quickly is not as effective as gradual weight loss. i mean everybody that says of dieting don't try to drop it quickly, have a sustained myth.goal, but that's a myth. >> people who lose weight rapidly and lose a lot in studies tend to weigh less several years later than people who lose weight more slowly. >> david allison, thank you. only on "cbs this morning" we're taking you behind the scenes as one company creates the first-ever super bowl ad. "cbs this morning" continues from new orleans. super bowl xlvii and all of the events surrounding it. new orleans. >> announcer: centrum, the most effective and multi-vitamin. centrum. they used centrum silver for the study... so i guess my wife was right.

8:01 am
an underground bunker. they say he kidnapped the child from a school bus tuesday after killing the driver who tried to stop him. the debate over tougher gun laws came to newtown, connecticut last night in a jam-packed public hearing. parents of the sandy hook shooting victims asked state lawmakers to take action. >> six weeks ago today we held the funeral for our 6-year-old son. i remember looking at him in his casket and holding his hand. no parent should hold this memory of their child. make the time make this the time, that change happens by turning this tragedy into the moment of transformation that
8:02 am
benefits us all. >> my name is susan aarons, and my daughter was a student in victoria soto's first grade class. the fact my daughter survived and others didn't haunts me. so i'm asking you that if you move forward and represent our state and our families in this town, you remember 26, that that day. >> every story marks want to cry. >> every story. >> meanwhile, 26 students from sandy hook elementary will perform at the super bowl pregame show on sunday, which that will be a special moment. >> a very special moment. >> as you flare those parents from newtown. >> we're in new orleans as you know, because it's super bowl time in new orleans. they tell me, never said no to a party. a security guard told me just this morning. f1 o as mardi gras it turned into a
8:03 am
real juggling act. jeff glor has that part of the story. good morning to you. >> reporter: gayle, good morning, too. this might be the biggest tourist event new orleans has ever seen. the combination of the super bowl and mardi gras season with the super bowl sandwiched in the >> carnival's of the whole season starts january 6th. an epiphany. it's french. complicated, but we enjoy it. >> reporter: this year mardi gras falls on february 12th, but the typical 12-day parade season leading up to it was expanded to make room for the super bowl. 12 parades were moved. not an ideal situation for some but a change hardy says had to be made. would it have been possible toll do mardi gras the season, without spliting it up?
8:04 am
>> no. absolutely not. no in downtown new orleans. you just can't fit 20 ounces of water in a 16 cup. >> reporter: during the convenient which some are calling super gras the city anticipates over half a million tourists. hardy says all 35,000 hotel rooms are sold out. but the locals are offering more than just hospitality. take this. a 365-foot-long float that cost $1.5 million to build, and creators say it is the biggest float in the world. >> the initial plan was to not do this float for a few more year es. you moved up the schedule because of the super bowl? >> that was the thought, yeah. you know the eyes of the world were going to be on new orleans. >> reporter: barry kern and his family have been building floats for a century. for pa trades all oevg the globe. but the one thing making for mardi gras in new orleans are unique. >> reporter: who pays for all this? >> by the gods who buy the
8:05 am
floats. >> reporter: no corporate responsiblers in mardi gras? >> that's the thing that makes us different from anywhere else in the world. you've never going to see the name of any -- any brand. we do it for ourselves. we're happy to have you come and visit, but we'd be doing it anyway. >> reporter: this year says hardy, the show won't just go on. it will be bigger than ever. >> new orleans! >> more than 1,000 floats and 50 parades. it makes no economic sense why people would spend money to wear a mask and give gifts to stranger, but that's what we do. we do it every year. >> reporter: other parades in our parish just not in new orleans. they resume after the super bowl. more than happy to take you on a guided tour, if you want to stick around. >> we'll be there. the new orleans mayor, good morning. >> good morning. >> how is this super bowl for lots of reasons different from all the others?
8:06 am
>> well -- >> in new orleans. >> our teng one. we're really proud of that. the spoot-of-footprint is much much bigger. we did the firstone post-911. this gives us an opportunity to show the rest of the world how incredible the people of new orleans are and thank them for everything they did to help us stand back up. you have 70,000 people in the hospitality industry. putting it in the middle of mardi gras, the largest freak show on earth. my team's handling it well and i'm proud of everybody. >> do you think the story of the super bowl, the story of the super bowl is bigger than the city of new orleans? isn't it? >> the city of new orleans is bigger than the story of the super bowl. that's what you meant to say. right, gayle? >> exactly what i meant to say. >> thank you. the super bowl is really just an important part of how a city rallied with a football team and with the community. the communal space we gather. we got to see each other, the
8:07 am
faithful game when we beat atlanta and have a chance to win again. in the past seven years you've seen the people of new orleanss in a much more, doing heroic thing to get the city stood back up. you can't put this on if you're not clicking on our four krillcylinders. >> guards from katrina still and you have to know people need 0 know the story. >> no question. katrina and rita did not cause all of new orleans problems like every american city we struggled with infrastructure health care education. one of the things that's happened is the people of new orleans really stoppeded bleed that started a long time ago, transformed the city into moving in the right direction. it would be unfair to say that the city's completely back. we have areas in in the city still struggling but you will find out building the northeast, some places come back faster than others. some places hurt before stay hurt longer.
8:08 am
it really is going to be a matter of national policy getting into urban areas reinvest in schools and education and build the kbaft so america can be great again. the people of new orleans have shown the nation a light at the end of the tunnel and how to get there. >> mayor, the economic impact for your city is going to be hundreds of millions of dollars. and yet many of the residents and business ownser here have not exactly rolled out the red mat for the nfl commissioner roger goodell. still hard feels. >> sure there are. >> one restaurant had his face on a dart board. >> yes. >> why is that jie mean we do know why it is but is that fair? >> let me say this. we take the saints seriously down here and what happened last year was very hurtful to the saints' fans. people bleed black and gold and they took offense to that. i've tried to tell them, separate what happens on the field with the larger economic impact. roger goodell has been great to the city. one of the reasons the saints were able to stay out there
8:09 am
after katrina, one of it's reasons why the super bowl is here. there's a bright line between what happened last season and a good demarcation. we're going forward. >> we're happy to be here. >> thank you. >> try not to gain ten pounds in twol days. >> thank you very much. he has been called america's most loved quarterback. of course, we're talking about drew brees.

create the special effects that would have been too expensive to film on location. >> we're investing animals that didn't exist, creating >> reporter: it was hard to tell what the spot was actually about while watching on the set. >> here's the secret. i know the cameras aren't on. without giving the commercial away. we're talking about worldwide destruction. this is a massive action film all rolled up in an amazing super bowl commercial. >> reporter: and they let us show you a sneak preview of their big ad. >> we're out of milk. >> are you kidding me? ♪ >> mister? >> what? >> there. >> reporter: of course these folks are pushing a product and would not let us leave without taking something with us. >> i have a gift for you. it's coming in right now. in 3, 2 --

8:28 am
welcome back to "cbs this
8:29 am
morning" at super bowl park in jackson square in new orleans. coming up this half houring there is nothing like a po boy. we take you through the history of this classic cuisine. >> plus julie chen and sharon osborne are here. we'll take a look at the food and the halftime show featuring beyonce. >> first it's time to show you this morning's headlines. the "los angeles times" says the last of the andrews sisters died yesterday. patty seen in the middle was the group's lead singer. patty andrews was 94. "the wall street journal" says "argo" is a hit in iran. boot legers call it their best-selling years selling more than 100,000 copies. >> it's interesting. "the new york times" says there are super bowl tickets available through licensed brokers. it's their biggest event of the year. brokers are buying as many
8:30 am
tickets as they can to sell at a profit. one broker bought a super bowl ticket for $1,200 and then resold it for 1$1,800. three years ago saints' drew brees was the mvp of super bowl xliv. this year he'll be watching from the stands and working as a spokesperson for tide. good morning. >> good morning. >> we want you to size up the game. two quarterbacks are going up against each other. >> colin kaepernick. both teams -- i guess it's been a while. certainly they both deserve to be there. they travelled a tough road to get there. they traveled to arrive here. they're both playing as well as you can play right now so they certainly both deserve to be here. >> do you have any advice? you know what it's like you now how they're feeling as you're sitting here. >> enjoy the moment. obviously there's a lot of
8:31 am
potential distractions. you come to the super bowl host city for the week. i guess you try to embrace it. you embrace the media day and embrace everything there is about the game and understand how exciting a time it is. in the end you want to narrow down your focus and play the best game you can. >> i wonder about the state of your sport the state of the nfl. probably know one has been more critical of roger goodell than you. you said recently nobody trusts him, trusts him, of goodell. what's your main concern? >> well obviously that was in regard to the bounty allegations and accusations which we as an organization certainly as a team felt were very unfair and lacked due process and a fair process. while we disagree all that is behind us now and we're really focused the 2013 season. we've got our head coach sean payton back. we're ready to move on. >> there were a number of player on media day who talked about
8:32 am
the future of nfl, hits concussions. and some who said i don't know if i'd have my own son play. >> those are major concerns. player health and safety should be priority number one and it has been for the association for a long time. you know certainly the head and neck injuries i think is the thing that's most concerning. that's why the return to play protocols need to continue to be looked at in regards to when a guy does suffer a concussion or a neck injury. you make sure they're ready to come back on the field before they do. and as guys leave this game and retired players who have been away for a long time you see suffering with some of these long-term concussion issues we need to make sure these guys are being taken care of. >> let's talk about the hoopla of the super bowl. when you won there was a sense that new orleanses with a team of destiny that year. does it make a difference? does the emotion go to the field? there's a lot of talk about the ravens this year for a lot of
8:33 am
reasons. >> yeah. it's -- i'd say the toughest part about this game is obviously you understand the magnitude of it you know. so when do you stuff on the field, emotions are running as high is that possibly can and it takes a little while to calm yourself, gain your poise, and go out planld the game and see that it's like any other game. but obviously when you when this game it can do some pretty magical things. really that super bowl victory with the culmination of four years with the resurgence post-katrina, watching the city and the team and the organization come together and just what that's meant for everyone around here has been incredible. >> who are you rooting for and why? speak into the microphone, drew brees. >> i'm not rooting -- >> you can tell us. >> it's -- what you find is i'm a fan of football. i love the game. even when we're not playing during the yearing eemg watching the prime time games. i'm watching guys i know around
8:34 am
the league. you're fans of certain guys and maybe coaches you've been with the past so you root for a lot of people to succeed. i love watching great football. this is going to be great football. you're talking two dominant defenses and two explosive offenses. something's got to give and we'll see where it does, but this could go either way. we'll see. >> you know what i love watching? the adorable commercials with your son. i love those commercials, drew. would you be okay if they wanted to play? >> absolutely. i think at a certain age. i think that's what -- that's what research is trying to determine. when do you want to expose them to any physical sport especially football. maybe it's not until 13 that you'd want to. there's flal football. there's seven on seven, plenty of you know other avenues that
8:35 am
